IPTV technology has revolutionized the way people access media and is gaining more users every day. Compared to classic cable or Satellite broadcasting, IPTV uses the Internet to stream all media which is its major advantage over other platforms as this enables companies to provide customized content to suit a variety of applications and environments; For example hospitals, schools and hotels can significantly benefit from the IPTV technology and improve the services they are meant to provide.
Furthermore increasing interactivity and level of engagement, broadcasting to a larger audience, increasing or decreasing the quality of picture and other video controls are options that can be performed without any delay by virtue of the IPTV live streaming server software.
IPTV can provide significant benefits to hotels. As depending on what the hotel wishes to offer its customers, using it can easily provide access to live shows, on demand videos, movies, television shows and even games. These services can be provided to every room without additional expense and prove to be extremely useful to the guests as it gives services that a traditional TV cannot provide. Another application of this technology can be broadcasting useful information; for example a guest might be able to view his bill right on his TV set. Using the technology hotels can reap greater profits and be cost effective, satisfy customers, provide value to them and gain value in return in terms of revenues
In hospitals this technology will be useful as it will provide a great variety of programming to patients especially those patients who are confined to their beds and have no other activity to do. This service can be very helpful to them as it provides a distraction by means of entertainment and activity which is necessary for a healthy recovery and since there is a large amount of programming available, it will appeal to most patients.
In schools the system can be used to replace the ageing PA systems as it gives the ability to broadcast to all areas of the school. This can be of significant use especially when the need arises to share educational videos in more than one room simultaneously which reduces the time and cost.
The IPTVs can be used in bathrooms also as now luxury homes and numerous hotels now come equipped with waterproof IPTVs in their washrooms. This is because it is not possible to waterproof traditional TVs but with IPTV it is a completely different story. Therefore it makes access to television in areas which was previously unheard of. This technology can be very beneficial to mothers having kids who simply do not like taking showers; just put their favorite cartoon show on and they will love taking a bath.
To sum it all up IPTVs make the experience of watching TV easier, convenient and much more user friendly. It is the way of the future and it is already here. With this IPTV technology it makes the traditional television a newer, innovative and improved way of watching television and communicating as well. This technology with its great variety of applications is an advanced technology for future.
